Subject: option to ignore Perl's ccflags/ldflags, or filter them properly
Perl's compiler and linker flags aren't all that innocent. They will insert directives which may affect how object code is generated, and conditionally enable/disable other code. For using/checking external dependencies, it might be nice to disable some of these flags; e.g. (from Debian) # /usr/bin/cc -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -DDEBIAN -fno-strict-aliasing - pipe -fstack-protector -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE - D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -fstack-protector -L/usr/local/lib -ldl -lm - lpthread -lc -lcrypt assertlibZZpeAaDI.c -o assertlibflwckxnH Or an even more offending version (from NetBSD): # /usr/bin/cc -O2 -pthread -I/usr/include -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe - fstack-protector -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/pkg/lib -fstack- protector -lm -lcrypt -lpthread assertliby6mTaz3d.c -o assertlibp3vtu5J3 ^ This one uses -rpath But most of the times, the flags are what 'you'd want anyway', so.. Better yet, figure out a way to maintain the search paths (since that's all we really care about), but strip out the other cruft, though that might be outside the scope of this module
